The Best News Ever: BITTERBLUE by Kristin Cashore

ZOMG!! Yesterday the best news flowed through the web and made me the most happy girl. If you did not know about this most fantastic news from Kristin Cashore then I must share it with you, and if you already know then let us SQUEEEEEEEEEE!!! together (I am still doing the snoopy happy dance)

As quoted from Kristin's blog
Bitterblue will be released on May 1, 2012 in the USA, Canada, UK, Australia,and New Zealand. It will be released on the same day in a few other countries/languages as well; I'll supply that information when I have it.

A few reasons I love the (USA/Canada) cover above: It feels like Bitterblue (the character) to me. The colors have special significance. The keys are a highly appropriate icon (like Katsa's dagger on the Graceling cover). And, the keys look like weapons. :o)

Here's a link to today's press release in Publisher's Weekly, which includes a little bit of teaser information about the book. Thanks to Sue Corbett for the interview.

Here's where you can preorder on Here's where you can preorder on Amazon. Ask your local indie bookseller about preordering, too, if preordering is what you want to do.

A lot of people have asked me why it took so long for me to finish this book. The answer is simple. It's not because I was distracted; it's not because I wasn't working my ass off; it's simply because Bitterblue is longer and more complicated than the other books I've written, and some books require more time than others. The book decides.

There's so much more to say, but for now, I'm just going to breathe a sigh of relief that I'm finally able to share the news and the cover. Enjoy, everyone!


  1. How exciting! I loved Graceling. Adding this to my TBR pile for sure. Thanks for the heads up!

  2. AGREE! I thought it would never happen!


  3. OMG!!!!!!!!!! The wait is killing me!!!! I've read Graceling and Fire last year and just finished reading both of them again just a few minutes ago and I'm just itching to get my hands on Bitterblue! These books are so good and I can't wait to see what's going to happen next! :)
